Monster hunting is not as easy as it sounds. If you've been playing Capcom's classic Monster Hunter you definitely already know this, but if you've tried running Wild Hearts on your PC you might have definitely seen other difficulties, namely stuttering and low framerates. Let's see how to fix Wild Hearts poor performance and system requirements for the game.

If you've tried running Wild Hearts on the Steam Deck you already know that the game has been suffering from CPU bottleneck problems and general stuttering and low frame rates even in closed environment. But on PC, that problem should definitely not be there, right?

How to fix Wild Hearts poor performance

Clearly the first thing you need to address is looking at any background processes on your PC that might be interfering with Wild Heart and depriving it of precious memory to run. So go into task manager and check what's taking up your resources. Once you are sure that your OS is as clean as possible, let's look at what else you can do.

The first step is lowering the resolution as much as possible, the minimum that Wild Hearts will go to is 1280x720 so try it. Then, you might want to disable all extra graphical effects, such as anti-aliasing and lower the detail level as much as possible, along with disabling V-sync.


If that still hasn't worked, it might be worth waiting as the devs have promised to be working on several performance patches, the first of which is to address the CPU bottleneck issue and should make the game run faster on most modern computers.
